My Time Has Not Come Yet

Most of us have been in this situation: We’re at the family BBQ, or home for the family Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner.  While everyone is eating and having a good time, there’s that one (or more) relative who will ask us that million dollar question, “Sooo….when are you getting married?” or “Why aren’t you married […]

Still NOT Engaged

Single ladies—many of us have received those Facebook posts from some of our girlfriends that include a close up shot of her finger showing off that beautiful rock—the jewel of great price—yes, that diamond ring. The caption on the picture reads “I said YES!” or “She said YES!” If it’s not this picture, it’s the romantic, moving […]

I’m Still Single…What Do I Have to Be Thankful For?

As we approach the Thanksgiving holidays, I immediately think of all those years in which I went to church with my family for the Thanksgiving service and go to my grandmother’s house afterwards.  I still see the kitchen smelling so good with the macaroni and cheese, string beans, dirty rice, potato salad, sweet potato pie […]

Faith of Our Mothers

For I am mindful of the sincere faith within you, which first dwelt in your grandmother Lois and your mother Eunice, and I am sure that it is in you as well.  (2 Timothy 1:5, NASB) My beloved grandmother, Mrs. Martha C. Millender was a strong woman of faith in God. She was also dedicated […]

Singles and Halloween: Trick or Treat?

In October many celebrate that “scary” time of year again: Halloween (ooooh). Kids dress up in costumes to say “Trick or treat! “on neighbors’ doors to load up on sugar (candy).  Many of your friends have Halloween parties where you and some your friends go all the way out to dress witches and monsters, with special […]

How to Have a Relationship With God and Wait on Him For Your Future Husband

There are many single women who can relate to having a sexual experience with the man in her life. It may be her boyfriend, or someone she’s dealing with “in the meantime” to fill in that lonely space in her life right now. During that moment of passion, she feels a sense of deep intimacy […]

Forgiveness: Letting Go And Moving Forward

One of the most difficult things we must deal with in this life is the hurt from a loved one or someone very close to us. A father abandons his children for no reason. A spouse must adjust when his mate leaves him for someone else. Your fiancé/fiancée breaks off the relationship two weeks before […]

You’re Worth Waiting For!

A few years ago, I met a guy at my job. In one of our conversations, I told him that I was a virgin. He was so shocked, it took a minute for him to process it. You would have thought I told him I just got out of prison! Interestingly enough, many others have […]

Friends With Benefits…And the Costs Involved

I love the TV sitcom “The Golden Girls.” The show features the lives and friendship between four older ladies living together. In one episode, one of the ladies, Blanche, is disappointed because one of her boyfriends cancels their date at the last minute. So she calls one of her male friends Mel Buschman. He is […]
